Paint It White
Remember, you can never ever go wrong with white. It is clean, simple, and minimal, and virtually every color or pattern in the universe will go along with it. White serves as the perfect backdrop for whichever design you choose to go for. Not only that, the color white gives the impression of space, giving your room a wider, bigger feel.


Wrap It Up
Whether it’s the living room, the bedroom (or literally any other room, really), adding cloth on pillows or surfaces will create a softer look and feel. Whether it’s bright or subtle colors, its mere presence provides comfort and coziness to its beholder. If you can splurge, go for cashmere or wool for a more luxurious feel.


Contain It
Despite what you might think, there are numerous ways to incorporate storage in a room without compromising your design. This simple basket on a shelf doesn’t stand out at all, but it gets the job done. Nobody wants a messy space nor a long trip to the storage room just to hide away all your clutter. Go for canvas bins or bushel baskets and get your problem solved!
